"If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin." - 1 John 1:7

Dear Jesus,

I know that you see all of our thoughts and so, on your part, you are in perfect harmony with each of us.  The light of your omnipresence shines into every soul.  But between me, a sinner, and all the sinners around me, the light of understanding is rather dim. I long for deeper and more honest and grace based relationships.  But without our strong belief that your grace covers our sins, doubt and fear will keep us from being open with each other.  Please help me and those near me to translate the relationship we have with you into deep and meaningful relationships with each other.  Purify us from our sinful and wayward hearts.  Tear down the fortress of anxiety and fear.  Give us the strength to venture over the mote of silence to share life changing communication with each other.  Amen

God sees every deep rooted thought in your soul.  People only see the flower, whether it is withered or in full bloom.
